Regulations Governing the Practice of Medicine, Osteopathic Medicine, Podiatry, and Chiropractic [18 VAC 85 ‑ 20]
Action:
Voluntary practice by out-of-state practitioners
 
General Information
Action Summary Chapter 740 of the 2002 Acts of the Assembly mandates that the board promulgate regulations for an out-of-state practitioner to be exempt from licensure or certification to volunteer his services to a non-profit organization that has no paid employees and offers health care to underprivileged populations throughout the world. Regulations set forth the information and documentation that must provided prior to such service to ensure compliance with the statute. The enactment clause required the board to adopt emergency regulations, and it is the board’s intent to replace those regulations with permanent regulations.
